Puerto Rico’s governor, Luis Fortuño, has 
officially named Héctor Pesquera, the former head 
of the FBI in Miami and the mastermind of a 
conspiracy that led to the arrest of five Cubans 
who’d infiltrated terrorist groups in Florida, as 
the new Superintendent of the Puerto Rican police.

Puerto Rico is facing its most serious wave of 
crime, violence and corruption in many years.

Pesquera arrived in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on a 
flight from Fort Lauderdale, and was immediately 
escorted by FBI agents to the Federal Building, 
his “alma mater,” at Chardón Street in Hato Rey, 
where the federal agency is headquartered.

It was at the request of the Mafioso Congressman 
Lincoln Diaz-Balart that Héctor Pesquera 
directed, organized and carried out the arrest of 
the Cuban Five, who had been sent to Florida from 
Cuba in order to fight the terrorist campaigns 
being waged against the island from that 
city.  The five were transformed into spies through a huge media show.

Pesquera ordered the mistreatment, solitary 
confinement, and rigged trial of the five Cuban 
patriots who remain kidnapped in US territory.

This policeman with multiple connections to Cuban 
American terrorist fauna, is of Puerto Rican 
origin, the black sheep of a family with deeply held nationalist convictions.

This former counter-intelligence officer was the 
head of the FBI in Puerto Rico, from where he 
arranged the liberation of the Miami terrorists 
involved in the case of the La Esperanza yacht, 
one of whom was “Pepe” Hernández, the current 
head of the Cuban American National Foundation 
(CANF).  The men were arrested for their 
connections with the plot to assassinate the 
Cuban leader, Fidel Castro, at Isla Margarita, Venezuela.

Pesquera was the director of the FBI’s Miami 
division until December of 2003, and later became 
a port and airport security consultant to the 
Broward County Sheriff’s Office (BSO).  His 
immediate supervisor at the BSO, Ken Jenne, was 
later investigated for corruption.

Coincidentally, Pesquera was still at this post 
when Luis Posada Carriles illegally entered US 
territory on the Santrina yacht, without the least difficulty.

Pesquera was also the same SAC (Special Agent in 
Charge) for the FBI in Miami who, for months 
supposedly had no inkling of the presence, only a 
few miles away from his office, of 14 of the 19 
Al-Qaeda terrorists who were preparing the 
September 11 attacks
while instead, he pursued, 
arrested and organized the political trial and 
sentencing for the Cuban Five who’d infiltrated 
the Miami extremist groups he so generously tolerated.

On June 23, 2001, Héctor Pesquera’s men arrested 
José Guevara, a former Venezuelan intelligence 
agent, in downtown Miami.  Known as an 
anti-Chávez activist, Guevara then tried, along 
with his cousin “Otoniel” Guevara, to collect 
millions of dollars by blackmailing the former 
head of Peruvian intelligence, Vladimir 
Montesinos, who was a fugitive from Peruvian justice at the time.

Instead of arresting him for extortion, Pesquera 
arranged for Guevara to be set free, and 
participated in the $5 million dollar reward 
claim by the Peruvian government, which was 
ultimately denied, for Montesinos’ capture.

In another episode of this police drama, José 
Guevara appeared in Miami with $600,000, which 
the masterminds behind the murder of the 
Venezuelan state prosecutor Danilo Anderson paid 
to execute the terrorist attack against Anderson in Caracas.

Pesquera was denounced for having participated in 
a meeting in Panamá, along with the current 
fugitive Patricia Poleo and other conspirators, 
where Anderson’s murder was planned.

Another telling detail is that Pesquera’s son, Ed 
Pesquera, was the person who destroyed Posada 
Carriles’ FBI file when the international terrorist’s trial was approaching.

Upon being nominated to his new post in Puerto 
Rico, Pesquera expressed that in order to fight 
crime, one must go to the root of the problem.

“It’s with an enormous sense of commitment that I 
accept this challenge,” he said.

The news of Pesquera’s nomination by Puerto 
Rico’s governor appeared as soon as March 26 at a 
Miami website, where it was reported: “The 
corruption on the Enchanted Island is so great 
that the Justice Department asked Miami-Dade 
County to lend it Pesquera, so that for an entire 
year, the peace and tranquility of that small island might be restored.”
